Cosmetic Lasers for Skin Rejuvenation and Hair Removal
Lasers and other types of pulsating light devices have been around for a very long time. As the technology for cosmetic treatment has developed over the years, lasers have become more and more utilized when performing procedures like skin rejuvenation and hair removal. At our Arizona practice, Dr. Karl Hiatt offers a variety of laser treatments to improve numerous aspects of the face and body.
Laser Hair Removal
Shaving and waxing can temporarily reduce the appearance of hair on the face and body, but these methods will not fully solve the problem and can cause bumps and redness. By applying powerful pulses of light directed at the pigmented hair follicle with IPL and Diode Laser Technology, laser hair removal treatment disrupts the follicles under the skin to eliminate unwanted hair.
A photofacial procedure is typically performed to remove brown spots, sun spots, and acne scars, and it can also diminish other conditions like fine wrinkles and lines around the eyes and mouth. One of the best benefits of a photofacial is its ability to help stimulate new collagen production beneath the skin to provide a noticeably revitalized appearance.
Fractional Laser Treatment
Some lasers only target the top layer of the skin (epidermis), while fractional lasers focus on reaching the deepest layers of the skin and tissue to provide better results. As an added benefit, fractional lasers have a minimal effect on the epidermis, which means a shorter period of recovery.
